Edison’s chef and owner, Jeannie Pierola is a Tampa Bay treasure. She really knows how to create a menu…and better yet, she knows how to get her team to execute her creations. There is a reason why she made the number one spot on the Tampa Bay Times Top 50 Restaurants of Tampa Bay…it’s because her food is so delicious.
Yes, sometimes it sounds a bit complicated – but she makes complex flavors sing. If you’ve ever been to a Chinese restaurant, you have probably had crab Rangoon. I love them. But Jeannie has taken the crab Rangoon to new heights. Who would have thought to stuff that wonderful crab filling into a squash blossom, tempura fried, and serve them with toasted macadamia nuts and an incredible blood orange ginger jam? Jeannie, that’s who. It is a masterpiece worth ordering.
Tampa Bay Times food critic Laura Reiley wrote: “She started strong in August 2012 and has kept getting stronger.” And that she has.
